When I’m telling a story, I’m also trying to teach myself something. It’s a challenge on both craft and personal levels. Part of the reason I’m into making films is to have that ability to move around, completely immerse myself in a place, and then be able to pull out of it and learn about somewhere new. You become a specialty in that thing, whether it’s immigration, English literature of the early Victorian era, or now Southern Gothic. In the same way an adrenaline junkie looks for different ways to experience that rush again, for me, I’m always looking for a way to experience the new or what I have yet to see in the world. - Cary Fukunaga

I have an idea. This is a great place, that I think will be very helpful. It’s absolutely beautiful. It’s about an hour and a half north from here. It’s like a perfect retreat, just the two of you. It’ll give you a chance to reset the reset button. I’ve sent a lot of couples there and they’ve all come back renewed.
